O sure Richard, that's what they are *telling* you.
These are the same guys who also say that the current
"threat level" is YELLOW WITH ORANGE POLKADOTS.
Anyway I think we are looking at the hole instead of the donut.
RFID is just one way of getting information. It has the drawback
that you have to modify the thing you are getting information
about. Face recognition may be a joke now but so were
personal computers once. People can be identified visually,
by smell, by gait, etc. without asking them to carry anything.
(People can do it, dogs can do it, computers will eventually.)
If "they" can read a license plate from orbit now, how long
before they can identify people?
